Sweats + The City

I tend to plan my outfits around the “you can never be overdressed” rule. Sure, I run around in workout clothes but when I’m actually getting dressed to look presentable, I shy away from completely casual and am often form over function.

Until now, that is. Sweatpants are having a moment. First, it was sweatshirts (which I totally got behind, in a big way…this is one of my favorites as of late) and now that it’s moved to bottoms, I went to my most-trusted brand to give the look a go.

The pros: very comfortable. Warm (this look was shot on a cold day). With a little bit of height via a shoe like this, it felt pulled together yet relaxed at the same time.

Top: Cos, similar here. Sunglasses: Stella McCartney, similar here. Jacket: Zara, similar here. Sweatpants: Mother. Shoes: Stella McCartney. Bag: Celine, similar here.

What do you think? Can I pull off the more casual look? Is this something you’d wear?
